Well, the sources of the "NOPE"s have spoken, and they've come up with some very specific things you should not put in your profiles or messages if you want to be messaged back. Take it from Michelle, 29: "If someone posts a photograph of themselves shooting a gun in an online dating profile, my first thought is...'the better to shoot me with? When we see you playing beer pong with your friend Tyler in a cap with your favorite sports team's logo, we think "frat boy," and not in a good way. Never mind, didn't like you anyway," complained Liana, 34.
Actually, to come to think of it, the worst offenders on this list should probably keep doing what they're doing to save us all the displeasure of exchanging messages with them. Jessica, 24, steers clear of "anything super bro-culture-y." And when those bros multiply... Especially if in every photo, the dude in question is standing next to three other identical bros," said Michelle."One of my pet peeves is 'I want a woman who has her life together.' What does that even mean? Another term with a nebulous meaning is "confidence." Vidya, 34, wonders when she sees someone looking for a woman with confidence:"Are there a whole bunch of women walking around being nothing but a complete bundle of nerves, afraid to open their mouths, try new activities or anything? Do they mean some kind of overt sexual confidence mostly seen in movies and rarely replicated in real life because well, real life? They are looking for someone like Catwoman or the Tombraider gal."Actually, I pretty much agree with this person's "I spend a lot of time thinking about" list, but putting it all out there on a profile comes off snobby, so don't copy and paste this article into your profile.
